Will SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack work on 2010 Mazda3 S with Sunroof


Will this work for my 2010 Mazda3 S with a sunroof? I currently have no rails or crossbars.

Yes! The SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1010 will fit on your 2010 Mazda 3 with a sunroof but you may find that you cannot operate the sunroof while this rack is attached- it is recommended that you take this roof rack off when not in use. This rack mounts with clamps/clips that sit in the door jams and then tighten down easily to give you the look and functionality of a permanent roof rack at a great price.

If you're looking for a more permanent solution, and you have the fixed mounting points on the roof of your 2010 Mazda3 S, I recommend looking at the Rola # 59714 which provides a permanent solution that won't break the bank. This rack mounts to the fixed mounting points on your roof easily and allows you to carry most bike racks, cargo boxes and kayak carriers without issue. The downside of racks like these are that you're likely not going to want to use your sunroof because of the wind noise that is generated-which is the attraction of going with something like the SportRack that is easily taken off and put back on when needed.
